  Engels Pleads Guilty

Week [Peoria IL]
April 18, 2005

A defrocked priest from the Peoria Catholic Diocese has pleaded guilty to criminal sexual abuse of a minor.

69-year old Francis Engels was in Milwaukee County Court on Friday.

According to court records, Engels took a boy from Central Illinois to a hotel room in Milwaukee in 1983 and abused him.

The victim is now 37 and settled a lawsuit against the Peoria Diocese earlier this month.

Engels, who was removed from ministry in 1993, is free on $25,000 bail.

He faces ten years behind bars at his June 3 sentencing.
